Take a look at the NEW County Awards Policy which takes into account recent Scout Association CHANGES for the approval of some important awards that can now be decided WITHIN Scouting Districts.
With decision-making for some awards now delegated to District Commissioners, to support them in their decision-making, they may wish to establish a District Awards Advisory Group/Panel, but are not required to do so. Commissioners can manage awards in their areas in different ways: some may wish to completely devolve the decision-making, while others may wish to take personal responsibility for them. This approach gives Commissioners the flexibility to manage awards in the way that works best for their Districts.
